New Zealand-based EdTech company Crimson Education was founded in 2013 from the idea that through personalised education, we can transform students into the world’s leaders of tomorrow. Since then, we have rapidly grown a mission-driven team who are dedicated to building the education system for the 22nd century. Our network includes 2,400 tutors and consultants worldwide who work with over 20,000 students.

Our tech platform is obsessed with students’ outcomes, helping connect tutors and mentors to high school students, and help them in achieving admission and scholarships to top universities in the US, UK and beyond.

Our developers work on a range of systems, from our student-facing app (the Crimson app), to our internal sales and marketing systems, and our website. As a Intermediate Software Developer you’ll keep your colleagues on their toes, making sure that everything we build works well; collaborating with your team-mates to improve the quality, efficiency, reliability and timeliness of the work we deliver.
